Product Development and CTM Manufacturing

Delivering quality products for clinical trials

Product Development and CTM Manufacturing

Frontage’s formulation development and CTM manufacturing team with extensive product development and clinical trial manufacturing experience designs formulations for targeted delivery of a therapeutic and then develops GMP manufacturing processes to ensure a high-quality product is produced for clinical trials. We develop finished products supporting IND, NDA filings, and generic ANDA filings. Our facilities have been designed for flexibility, as we offer a variety of dosage forms and the ability to handle highly-potent compounds and DEA-controlled substances. We have the equipment needed to model processes on the bench and pilot scales for technology transfer to large-scale manufacturing. We complement these capabilities with our good manufacturing practices (GMP) and manufacturing areas for preclinical, Phase I, and II clinical supplies.


Our team of expert scientists quickly identifies product complexities to develop your compounds. Our dedicated team takes you through each step of the product development process, from beginning to end.
